At least five people killed, 100 hurt in Somaliland protests

August 12, 2022 




 At least five people have been killed and 100 others injured in Somalia’s breakaway Somaliland region when security forces clashed with protesters demanding presidential elections be held in November.


President of Somaliland, Muse Bihi Abdi, says the majority of those who were injured were security forces who were attacked with clubs, metal bars, and stones. He did not say whether those killed were civilians or security personnel.


He also says that unauthorized violent demonstrations aimed at destroying the nation will not be accepted.


Opposition leaders said some of the deaths occurred after security forces beat and then opened fire on demonstrators in Somaliland’s capital, Hargeisa and two other towns.
